Feeding stop in Key Largo to prevent wife revolt. Searches had found a lot of restaurants offering essentially the same Keys mix of diner food and seafood. Sharkey’s Pub & Galley stuck out for reviews that honed in on the seafood and location at a marina, world’s away from dreary US-1. A $20 for $30 deal on yelp helped, too. I need to learn more about yelp.
Sharkey’s is the typical Keys hangout, its isolated location (bring GPS or map) ensures a predominantly local fisherman crowd.
Seafood expert wife pronounced the bourbon sauce scallops excellent. The steamed clams and calamari top notch. The open face Hogfish Key Largo is a satisfying entree with an interesting play on the Keys lime theme in the sauce.
Affable owner, the rest of the service is friendly though brusque.
Only downside, now I need to find a “Don’t Worry, Be Crabby Sign” for wife to take home.
Great stop along the road to Key West.
Readers, what Key Largo restaurants have to tried and loved or loathed?
